I have 30 years practice experience of yoga, movement and process work, and 20 years of teaching practice in the field of bodywork. My teaching experience started as a modern languages as well as language and playfulness teacher when I was in my early 20s. My ‘students ‘ age over the years, has spanned from 3-5 years old to over 80 years old, from playgroups to schools to yoga centres to Charities supporting all sorts of challenging projects in communities, to teaching at Edinburgh University.
I am a certified Intermediate Iyengar teacher, a registered Craniosacral therapist, I studied Core Process Psychotherapy as well as Swedish Massage, baby massage and Leboyer Toning. Over the years, I also developed a strong interest through personal life circumstances, in women’s health and babies and children. I started supporting women prenatally in 2007 and postnatally in 2000, after the birth of my first child. Currently, I am studying in Bristol on the IBT (integrative Baby Therapy ) training. furthering my education in early life imprints and repatterning as well as deepening existing listening skills and trauma knowledge and more This later training lasts for two years and will end in 2021.
My ‘skills’ ( a strange work for vocational professions) range from Yoga teaching, to Cranio-sacral therapy, movement, dance facilitation, pre- and post-natal work, meditation, counseling skills, mindfulness. I also have a passion for Clowning as a form of expression in its great authenticity and have attended courses in it , in Scotland and Switzerland. I am an intuitive teacher. I practice from what I feel and teach from what I see. BKS Iyengar used to say :’Read the asanas in their bodies’. It is not an intellectual process. It goes deeper than that. In craniosacral therapy, one talks of ‘inherent treatment plan’-allowing enough space for things to come to surface and show what wants to be allowed in the space and resolved.
My work reflects the richness of life experience and how yoga practice and cranio-sacral work have taught me a different and much deeper way of listening and being with one another.
